Guarantee the quality of your products


Sensor testing evaluates the performance and accuracy of sensors used in devices and systems to ensure they function correctly and provide reliable data. Sensors detect and respond to physical environmental stimuli such as light, temperature, pressure, motion or chemical elements. 

Why is SENSOR TESTING Important?

Sensors are utilised across different sensors and applications to monitor, control and automate processes. Through testing, possible weaknesses can be identified, and product improvements can be initiated at an early stage, contributing to quality assurance during manufacturing.

Sensor testing is essential to ensure the sensors' accuracy, reliability and safety across different applications. 


TÜV SÜD offers sensor manufacturers comprehensive solutions to ensure the reliability and performance of their products. We offer customisable testing requirements covering various critical aspects of sensor functionality, providing a complete picture of your sensor's capabilities and limitations. Sensor testing can include:

  • Make & Break Test – verify the sensor's ability to reliably switch between on and off states without malfunction or failure
  • Safety Test – evaluate the sensor's performance under various conditions to ensure it operates safely and adheres to relevant safety standards
  • Electrical Test – assess the sensor's electrical performance, including parameters like voltage, current, and power consumption
  • Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Test – measure the sensor's susceptibility to Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and its potential to generate EMI to ensure it functions reliably in a real-world environment
  • Ingress Protection (IP) Test – determine the sensor's level of protection against environmental factors such as exposure to dust, water and other elements
  • Chemical Test – assess the sensor's accuracy and performance to detect and respond to chemical elements or compounds that may originate from the environment, materials they come in contact with, or the target analyte they are designed to detect

Your benefits at a glance

  • Market Access – Our globally recognised certifications help you gain market access and demonstrate product compliance with international standards.
  • Enhanced Quality and Reliability – Rigorous testing identifies potential issues early, allowing you to refine your sensor design and ensure consistent performance.
  • Reduced Risks – By validating your sensor's safety and functionality, you minimise the risk of product failures and potential liability concerns.
  • Increased Customer Confidence – Demonstrate your commitment to quality and performance through independent testing.
